Hey battle brothers, aspect warriors, and gitz.
I would like to propose two small changes to the game that would, in my opinion, improve the multiplayer experience.
1). Soft retreat
For those of you who have played the CoH series and DoW 2, you'll have an idea what I'm talking about. Select a squad, tap a hotkey, and they run like cowards towards your HQ. Traditionally, the retreat function would give the squad that's fleeing defensive bonuses and increased speed as they made their way back to the HQ.
I would support a function that, if added to infantry units, would simply send the squad back to a predetermined location on the map, or to the nearest production building. Squads would not receive a defense buff, nor a speed boost. This could help protect resource investment in squads, and remedy the annoyance of ordering a unit back to a building on your mini-map, only to realize that the unit is half of a meter outside of the reinforcement area. I deal with this all the time and find it extremely frustrating. Maybe I just need to get better with my mini-map clicks, but having to divert your attention from more important things, just to move a unit a few more centimeters is irritating.
2). Toggle reinforcement
Here's another simple change that could help players focus more on the action and less on managing units out of combat. Let us right click on the reinforcement icon and any time a unit is near a production structure, or toggle an option on the structure itself to allow automatic unit reinforcement.
These are two simple, quality of life changes, allow more focus on the gameplay, and less on out of combat unit management.
Would you guys be interested in these changes?
